Watch Hulu Outside America
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Some of the places where Hulu is most popular are not even in the USA! Hulu, despite broadcasting only American TV shows on the Internet, and even more so, the fact that they restrict access to the shows to American IP addresses, is very popular around the world. Countries like Sweden, Mexico, Australia, Canada, and many places around Europe and Asia all enjoy watching Hulu. American TV is welcomed on a world wide scale by younger generations of TV fans, who love the sex, the explosions, and the mysteries these TV shows portray. So if Hulu is restricted to American IP addresses, how are getting to watch Hulu outside America?

Fans of Hulu are able to watch Hulu outside America with a VPN. In the past, proxies, like Hotspot shield were quite popular and though they worked temporarily as a way to change your IP address, Hulu was able to find out the IP addresses of these anonymous proxy servers, and is now even able to detect the use of proxies. Now, in a similar fashion, users are turning to VPN's or "virtual private networks" to change their IP address temporarily and get access to Hulu from outside US borders.

A VPN changes your IP address by inviting you to be a part of their private network. When you sign into their network, the private data such as you IP address and any other form of data you broadcast (unknowingly) over the Internet in encrypted and tunneled before being sent to the private server in America. The information enters the server and is again encrypted and tunneled before being sent off to Hulu's site. By the time it reaches Hulu's site, Hulu cannot see your original information, they can only see the data provided by the VPN server, Because the server is located in the USA, you get "the go ahead" for streaming Hulu's videos. The same works for Netflix, Pandora, and other IP restricted sites. This is how Hulu fans are able to watch Hulu outside America.

Despite the advanced technology involved in creating a tunnel and encrypting information, VPN have little effect on you Internet speed, and they're easy to use even for people who don't understand how they work. In the same way you can use your computer despite not knowing the inner workings of it, VPN's are very user friendly. Connecting to the vpn is similar to starting any other sort of software and once the VPN is on, there is nothing else to do but surf the Internet as you normally would.

For those who purchase a VPN and successfully get an American IP address but are still unable to watch Hulu outside America, it may be that there is left-over data stored in your browser regarding your time zone or IP address. Clear your browser cookies (at least for Hulu's site) and flush your DNS information. This should clear any data that might "give you away" and there should be no more road-blocks between you and watching Hulu outside America, regardless of your location in the world.
